Gets the style properties for the footer section of the DataList control.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

property TableItemStyle^ FooterStyle {
	virtual TableItemStyle^ get();

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls::TableItemStyle^

A TableItemStyle object that contains the style properties for the footer section of the DataList control. The default value is an empty TableItemStyle object.

Use this property to provide a custom style for the footer section of the DataList control. Common style attributes that can be adjusted include foreground color, background color, font, and content alignment within the cell. Providing a different style enhances the appearance of the DataList control.

The FooterStyle property of the DataList control inherits the style settings of the ControlStyle property. For example, if you specify a red font for the ControlStyle property, the FooterStyle property will also have a red font. This allows you to provide a common appearance for the control by setting a single style property. You can override the inherited style settings by setting the FooterStyle property. For example, you can specify a blue font for the FooterStyle property, overriding the red font specified in the ControlStyle property.

To specify a custom style for the footer section, place the <FooterStyle> tags between the opening and closing tags of the DataList control. You can then list the style attributes within the opening <FooterStyle> tag.


The ShowFooter property must be set to true for this property to be visible.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the FooterStyle property to specify a custom background color for the footer section of the DataList control.
